I purchase this one as a replacement to my old Sears 6 gal shop vac. After 27 years of use it needed a motor. I think I got my money's worth. This unit does not have a large foot print and as many reviewers have mentioned before the size of the tank being vertical makes it easy to pull around a crowed shop, easy to park and does not tip over. Power is 3x greater than my old unit with 20% of the noise level. Cleaing cars and minivans is a snap. The hose size is a little strange but I have found some attachments that fit in nicely just by changing the hose with a longer crush proof unit. Thanks Sears for making a great product. Now if I can only figure out what replacement filters i can use.....

This worked very well pulling water out of a carpet. Discovered, however, when I wanted to use it with leaf attachment that there is no adapter for a 1-7/8 inch part. It's a non-standard size. Think about this if you want to use different attachments. You may not be able to & who needs 2 shop/vacs? If I hadn't tossed the box, back this would go. Would give it 4-1/2 stars if it hadn't been for this.
I wanted a wet/dry vac that was not too big; not too small. this one is perfect. Great suction; plenty of power/capacity. I especially like the stainless steel look compared to the standard plastic canisters.

Have been waiting for this to go on sale - and it did for Father's Day. Great performance and fairly quiet for a shop vac. Sleek high profile is easy to move about.

I purchase this stylish looking, stainless steel housing unit to replacement my old shop vac. The assembly was a breeze and it comes with all the standard attachments and the filter. The suction is great and it is surprisingly quiet for 4HP motor. I am using the unit as a blower as well to clean my driveway and patio. So far I am very pleased with its performance and its design. The price was great after using my reward points and the coupon.
well, it's a vacuum, it's supposed to suck. other shortly owned vacuums have had the problem of not sucking and i must say THIS SUCKS! AWESOME buy, highly recommended.
